The 2 nights stay at Cascades was excellent. The managers / owners were so good to us while we were there. Always there to help with any needs or assistance .Rooms were clean and modern. Enough appliances if we wanted to cook tea which we did for one night. Good on telling us any places we might visit. Thanks Robyn👍

Fantastic outdoor space and great to have a near-new BBQ. Interior a bit tired, bed soft/saggy which was a shame. Hosts very friendly and super helpful.
